Who says you have to look at actual kitchens for hardware inspiration? Looking at how interior spaces handle metal accents, color and texture combinations can just as easily help inform and inspire the design of your kitchen, bathroom or vanity.

For rich jewel tone bathrooms with colored tile, choosing a finish as luxurious as brass plays off the bold colors well for an overall luxe vibe. The same can be applied for richly pigmented kitchens in the examples below.

In this Milanese home in Italy, a disparage of objects is united by a dark and neutral color scheme with black taking center stage on major leather pieces and the kitchen island. While this home lacks the traditional kitchen look of upper and lower cabinetry, these black out kitchens below capture the essence of using black as a major design brief.

Silver finishes like Chrome and Satin Nickel have been indoctrinated as a timeless staple in kitchen designs. Just as stainless steel appliances have become staples after the advent of white and black appliances, silver finishes have become design mainstays for their hard working finishes and lasting durability.

Did you know silver finishes don’t just lean neutral and cool? Yes, there are warm tones of silver finishes to accent warmer colored cabinets and interior spaces!
Hickory Hardware has a vast variety of silver finishes. Here are just a few, the differences may be subtle but the undertones can change everything much like paint color.
- Chrome: Bright and hard-wearing, chrome leans a bit cool-toned with ever so slight undertone of blue. Think of what chrome finishes look like on cars. Great for accenting white, black and gray cabinets.
- Polished Nickel: Bright but warm-tone silver with ever so slight undertones of yellow. Polished Nickel is perfect if you like your hardware to shine but not look too cool like Chrome. Great for accenting warmer toned cabinets in wood or warmer grays.
- Satin Nickel: A brushed neutral finish that is neither too warm nor cool. The brushed nature of this finish lends to its popularity, easy to maintain and masks fingerprints. Can work on almost any cabinet color.
- Stainless Steel: Identical to Satin Nickel but in a different brush pattern.
